About Project ZipCode
Project Zip Code (PZC) is a user friendly, secure computer program that counts your members and matches them by congressional district, state legislative district and county. 

Many credit union members reside in states other than the state in which their credit union is domiciled. This is why it's important that all credit unions participate; without full participation we can't get a clear picture of our grassroots strength. 

Your information is safe and secure with Project Zip Code. No personally identifiable data or individual information leaves your computer. All of your data remains confidential and secure.

SRCUS Wrap-up: 14 Louisiana Professionals Represented in Georgia, 4 Successfully Complete 3-Year Program
The 2018 session of the Southeast Regional Credit Union School (SRCUS) wrapped up in June on the University of Georgia campus.  Louisiana was well represented by fourteen professionals from twelve different credit unions at the three-year program.
 
We extend our congratulations to the four Louisiana students in the 2018 graduating class:
  • Angie Baker, Heart of Louisiana FCU
  • Ashley Neal, Pelican State CU
  • Pegeen Singley, Centric FCU
  • Yolanda Whitmore, Neighbors FCU
Second year students also apply the knowledge gained from the on-site sessions to written projects that require strategic analysis of their credit unions while Third year students write and present whitepapers focused on relevant issues facing the credit union industry. 

Additionally, Louisiana had two award winners this year:
  • Second year student Stefanie Lux of Ascension CU received Honors of Excellence on her analysis project of Ascension.  
  • Third year graduate Yolanda Whitmore of Neighbors FCU was part of an Honors of Excellence award winning whitepaper team for "Violence in the Credit Union Workplace".  

Yolanda walked away from her SRCUS experience feeling inspired and found herself quoting William Arthur Ward "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."    

If you're looking to get inspired, go to www.srcus.org to find out more.  Registration for the class of 2021 will open in February of next year.
